Benefit handling

The product lifecycle management is a platform benefiting both the producer of goods, the consumer and everyone else in between. Being able to follow the lifecycle of a product, companies get insight in how their products reach their customer. The customer in turn gets to be more aware and involved in product origins and production.

Handlers update information about a product by scanning a smart tag on it. Consumers scan the tag with an app on their phone to receive the information. The information can contain a product description, transport details or conditions picked up by sensors. The customer can also register the product, add it to their portfolio and give it a rating.

By attaching smart data matrix codes to products on the production line, products are registered on a cloud-based IoT-platform. After registering, product data can be accessed and updated at any point of the product’s lifecycle. The producer side can use this to manage transport and storage of goods. Additionally, the solution integrates into our transport management system and can be integrated into Visma Nova ERP software.

The platform is being developed and piloted as part of the TagItSmart EU project. It is a proof-of-concept for smart tag based IoT solution for mass market products.

TMS is a transport management system especially meant for dealing with time-sensitive and high value transports that in many cases are business-critical. It aims to improve reliability and readiness by utilizing item-level tracking, picture proofs and proactive alerts throughout all phases of the transport.

The system allows item-level tracking of the condition of goods during transports with proactive alerts. Depending on the goods, the trackable item can be a pallet, trolley, box or individual product. Another benefit compared to traditional systems is that the information is available for all involved parties, not just the transport company.

The system is cloud-based and ordinary mobile phones are used for tracking in the field. Picture proof of storage or cargo conditions can be required at any step of the transport. In case of delay or damage, the information is immediately available for both recipient, sender and the transport company management with options for automatic email and SMS alerts.

The system has been successfully piloted with border crossing and multimodal transports (truck and ferry) between Finland and Sweden.
